neytiri by marziiporn neytiri by marziiporn
PLEASE CLICK TO WATCH THE YOUTUBE PAINTING VIDEO!!

a birthday present for my dad, he LOVES neytiri so i just had to paint her for him :heart:


materials: oil paints on self-stretched canvas
time: approx 2 hours

(sorry my camera is complete shit...looks better in person :( )


*tips for working fast*
-organize the paints on your palette; blues next to the blues, greens next to those, arrange them by what colors can mix with others, makes for fast and easy color mixing
-turpenoid (or paint thinner); depending on what style you're going for, load up your paint with turp, this gives you a watery looking paint but also helps it dry faster and easy to blend on. great for backgrounds and loose areas (its also great for going in later to do sharp lines and edges) and is a great mixing medium
-a little bit of paint goes a long way! don't load up your canvas with gobs of paint, (unless thats the look you're going for) the less paint you use, the easier it is to blend without the paint getting muddled
-work from light to dark; if you happen to use a lot of paint, its MUCH more difficult to add highlights to dark areas. instead, add shadows to light areas

I love the way you used the warm color pallet and balance them perfectly against her cyan skin. Balance is defiantly key here. Beautiful, job well done.

i enjoy every drawing and painting you made - you got my whole respect for the professional way you use and describe the traditional technics - i don't like these high-studied "artists" who do nothin more than create expensive wallpaper-designs
